Dekton is a product we get from Cosentino that is basically a manmade quartz on steroids. It is as strong as it is beautiful!
Dekton employs exclusive Sinterized Particle Technology, a high tech process which represents an accelerated version of the metamorphic change that natural stone undergoes when subjected to high temperatures and pressure over thousands of years. Sinterized particle technology synthesizes truly innovative procedures from the most advanced technology industries. This evolution represents a technological and industrial leap capable of generating a new process, a revolutionary material and a leading product. Electronic microscopy allows us to fully appreciate the material’s zero porosity, a consequence of the sinterization and ultra-compaction process exclusive to DEKTON. This zero porosity and lack of the micro-defects that cause tension or weak spots mark the difference as far as DEKTON is concerned. (I pulled this paragraph off of the Dekton website. It explains the material better than I can.)
The options are endless! Unlike quartz that is thicker, heavier, and harder to use in more diverse applications, Dekton can do pretty much anything when it comes to surfacing because it’s lighter, thinner, and super strength.
